I've now played only a little bit of EQII. WoW is my choice. EQII feels like a game where if you play it nightly for at least 3 hours it'd be great. Great for groups, huge story. Otherwise, it just feels too overwhelming and very, very, long. After playing each for two hours, I wanted to go back into WoW, but didn't feel the need. For EQII I don't feel I accomplished much (include character creation, listening to the into, tutorial, and questing for both). WoW was fun, without a question, EQII felt big and time consuming. But I am a casual player, I can see a huge world for those that wanna put time into it for EQII. Alot of pain for those that just wanna log on now and then, unless they log on without a concern for when they log off.
